Free Second Phone Numbers




Unless you still have an old-school landline, your only phone number is your personal cell number.

This makes it a bit more difficult to control who gets your cell phone number since it's the only one you have.

Did you know that there’s a free solution to having a second meaningless number to give in less important situations?

TextMe Up is an app for iPhone and Android that provides you with a second phone number that will ring to your cell phone.

It’s like an alias email account only it’s for your smartphone, which allows you to protect your personal number.

Another great benefit is that you’ll know much about anyone calling or texting just by which number it’s coming in from.

So many companies that you do business with ask for a phone number these days, so this is a great way to keep things separate.

Your first number is free at: http://www.textmeup.com
